KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLA. -- Liquid nitrogen lines are being used to freeze portions of Space Shuttle Atlantis' hydraulic lines leading to and from the Power Drive Unit (PDU) to prevent air intrusion during its removal. PDU replacement is expected to occur without impacting the April 24 launch date on mission STS-101

X-ray images taken January 20, 2004 from Chandra indicate that Saturn may act as a mirror, reflecting explosive activity from the Sun. Chandra captured the image at left just before a medium-sized flare occurred on the Sun. The image at right coincided with the solar flare and represents the first observation of an X-ray flare reflected from Saturn's low-latitudes. Scale:

While there are certain similarities between Abell 520 and the so-called Bullet Cluster [ http://chandra.harvard.edu/photo/2006/1e0657/ ], other significant differences raise interesting scientific questions. For example, the dark matter and the galaxies in the Bullet Cluster remained together despite the enormous collision between the galaxy clusters. In the case of Abell 520, these components have been separated, which flies in the face of conventional understanding of dark matter....

View X-ray Distance Measurement Technique animation [ http://chandra.harvard.edu/photo/2004/darkenergy/animations.html#xray_method ]. This set of illustrations shows the technique used to make distance measurements to galaxy clusters. Chandra's observations are used to determine the ratio of the mass of the hot gas and the mass of the dark matter in different galaxy clusters. This "gas fraction" depends on the assumed distances to the clusters, which in turn depends on the amount of...

X-rays and other forms of light from a distant quasar can be bent by the gravitational field of an intervening galaxy. This bending can produce multiple images of the same quasar. These images will in general be magnified by different amounts, so will in general appear to have different brightness. Note that the lensing galaxy is often very dim or invisible.

X-rays are produced when low energy photons of the cosmic microwave background radiation (red) are boosted to X-ray energies (white) by colliding with high energy electrons in a jet of particles speeding away from the vicinity of a black hole. This process is called Compton scattering. Related Field Guide: X-Rays - Another Form of Light [ http://chandra.harvard.edu/xray_astro/xrays2.html ] (Credit: NASA/CXC/M.Weiss)

While perhaps not quite as well known as its star formation cousin of Orion, the Corona Australis region (containing, at its heart, the Coronet Cluster) is one of the nearest and most active regions of ongoing star formation.

When a massive star explodes like the one that produced G292.0+1.8, it creates a shell of hot gas that glows brightly in X-rays. Chandra is able to observe the stellar debris, revealing the dynamics of the explosion. With nearly six days of Chandra observing time devoted to studying G292.0+1.8, astronomers hope they can use this particular remnant to better understand the complicated details of such an explosion. This image shows the high-energy X-rays only (1.810-2.050 and 2.400-2.620 keV)....

The brightest stellar explosion ever recorded may be a long-sought new type of supernova, according to observations by NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory and ground-based optical telescopes. This discovery indicates that violent explosions of extremely massive stars were relatively common in the early universe, and that a similar explosion may be ready to go off in our own Galaxy.

View the animation [ http://chandra.harvard.edu/photo/2005/grb050709/animations.html#binary_crash ]. The most likely explanation for GRB050709 is that it was produced by a collision of two neutron stars, or a neutron star and a black hole. Such a collision would result in the formation of a black hole (or a larger black hole), and could generate a beam of high-energy particles that could account for the powerful gamma-ray pulse as well as observed radio, optical and X-ray afterglows....

Using Chandra spectra obtained from more than 300 supermassive black holes in the centers of galaxies, a team of astronomers has been able to determine the amount of iron near the black holes. The black holes were all located in the North [ http://chandra.harvard.edu/photo/2003/goods/index.html ] and South [ http://chandra.harvard.edu/photo/2003/goods/more.html ] Chandra Deep Fields, where the faintest and most-distant X-ray objects can be identified.

Two white dwarf stars, orbiting each other in a death grip and destined to merge, may be flooding space right now with gravitational waves. These waves are ripples in space-time predicted by Einstein but never detected directly. Einstein predicted that accelerating, massive objects emit gravitational waves, which propagate through space at light speed. A passing wave will cause the Earth, Moon and all matter to bob, like a buoy on the ocean, subtly altering the distance between them. View...

To celebrate the Hubble Space Telescope's sixteenth anniversary in April 2006, NASA and the European Space Agency (ESA), released this image of the magnificent starburst galaxy, Messier 82 (M82). This mosaic image is the sharpest wide-angle view ever obtained of M82. The galaxy is remarkable for its bright blue disk, webs of shredded clouds, and fiery-looking plumes of glowing hydrogen blasting out of its central regions. The Hubble [ http://heritage.stsci.edu/ ] observation was made in March...

This X-ray image of M51 was observed on June 20, 2000 for 4 hours with the Advanced CCD Imaging Spectrometer (ACIS). Chandra observations of this spiral galaxy and 3 other nearby galaxies have revealed a possible new class of X-ray sources. These mysterious X-ray sources, marked with green diamonds in the version on the left, are called "quasisoft" sources because they have a temperature in the range of one to four million degrees Celsius.

This X-ray image has been processed to minimize the point sources in the Chandra observations of The Antennae galaxies. The result is that the clouds of multimillion-degree gas in the system are clearly revealed. The colors in this image show the intensity of the low (red), medium (green) and high (blue) energy X-rays. Scale:

This visible-light image of supernova remnant N63A was taken by the Hubble Space Telescope's Wide Field and Planetary Camera 2 (WFPC2) on August 10, 1997. The optical light is brightest in the central region of the remnant, which appears as a triangular-shaped "hole" in the X-ray data. The field of view is the same as the Chandra image. Scale:

This X-ray image from the Roentgensatellite or ROSAT - a joint venture between Germany, the United Kingdom and the United States - may offer a view of a recently formed neutron stars' X-ray glow. Pictured is the supernova remnant Puppis A, one of the brightest sources in the X-ray sky, with shocked gas clouds still expanding and radiating X-rays. A faint pinpoint source of X-rays is visible (white dot near center) which is likely a young neutron star, kicked out by the asymmetric explosion and...

This visible-light image of GB1508+5714 was taken by the Hubble Space Telescope's Wide Field and Planetary Camera 2 on July 22, 1995. No source is present in the jet region. This archival HST image helps rule out the possibility that the jet in GB1508+5714 is due to a foreground galaxy or a gravitationally lensed image of the quasar. In this image, north is up, and east is to the left. Scale:

This illustration shows the rings of Saturn, an example of a disk that is very familiar to us. The material in this disk loses very little energy because of friction. Therefore, compared to a black hole such as GRO J1655-40, the disk is very stable, and is much cooler and fainter. (Illustration: NASA/CXC/M.Weiss)
